The NCSPCA has seen an amazing number of our furry friends find their forever homes over the past several weeks of our adoption special. It is truly heartwarming to see some of our long-time residents find families of their own during the holidays. In the past month, some of our dogs who left with tails-a-wagging were Buddy, Clark, Jimmy, Chance, Bill, Mia, Shilo, P.J., Snowball, Manny, and that effervescent “pittie” Brandy! Among our colorful collection of cats, Socks, Flower, Melody, Sunshine, Sylvie, Louise, and Marty recently purred their way to their new homes. Despite the large number of adoptees, we have new arrivals coming in our doors just as quickly, so there is no better time to stop by our shelter and meet you new best friend!
Our featured pet this week is Portia Kent, a German Shepherd and Alaskan Malamute-mix who was found wandering by the Port Kent ferry dock. She wouldn’t allow anyone to approach her for three long days and cold nights, until finally one of our staff members was able to coax this beauty into her car. Portia is a gorgeous young lady who was initially quite shy, but after several days of gentle care she has begun to come out of her shell and show us her sweet personality. She now greets us with a wagging tail and an excited yelp. If you like big fluffy dogs and have a some patience, this sweet lady could very well be the perfect dog for you. Please stop by and meet Portia and give her the second chance she deserves.
